People often assume this is the "Doha" Fort that is more commonly used in destination photography. It is not in Doha, but in the North West, approx 90... More

This fort bears little detail and its age seems questionable. You'd be scraping the bottom of barrel if you spend more than 5 minutes here.

There's not much to do or see here but worth the stop for visitors with deep interest in the local culture and history. Just don't get your hopes up too much.

Compared to other forts in the region (Bahrain for example), Doha Fort doesn't seem like too much from the outside. It is pretty much surrounded by Souk Waqaf and there is construction going on right up to the walls of it. There is a door facing the souk, but it looks closed as in hasn't been open for some time.... More

We were too late to go inside the day we visited but the outside was very untidy with all sorts of junk in front of the entrance. This part of the souk was quiet and empty. Next door there was a compound for the camels which could be seen easily.
